How to Make Golden Milk, or a Turmeric Latte

When I was a kid, every time winter came around (and it was cold/flu season), my mom would always make me a warm glass of turmeric milk at night before I went to sleep.

I loved the delicious, slightly sweet, velvety drink – and even as I got older it became my go-to when I had a cold or a sore throat, or even when I just wanted something to soothe my stomach at the end of the night.

Fast forward a few years later, and I’ve started seeing “Golden Milk” and “Turmeric Lattes” and “Turmeric Tea” everywhere! Which isn’t surprising, because it’s such a unique, warming and tasty drink for the winter.

So when I was approached by the folks at Frontier Co-op to try a set of their spices, including their Turmeric, Vietnamese Cinnamon, and Cracked Black Pepper, I thought my mom’s Golden Milk recipe would be the perfect way to test them out!


I love Frontier Co-op’s spices because their spices are always 100% Organic, Sustainable and Fair Trade certified. They have a commitment to giving back to the community and the environment through their work, and it’s reflected in the high quality of their spices.

And their spiced worked perfectly in this recipe! I hope this nostalgic drink from my childhood warms you up this winter!

  1. I was just wondering, I see you mention Vietnamese cinnamon….I was told to use cinnamon from Ceylon for lowering blood sugar. Also, is Vietnamese cinnamon the same as Saigonese cinnamon?

    • Hi Michele! Ceylon cinnamon has the lowest Coumarin content of all the types of cinnamon — so it’s commonly used by people who have liver issues (since too much Coumarin can damage the liver). If you’re taking cinnamon therapeutically (e.g. in capsules) – like you mentioned taking it to lower blood sugar – you would be recommended Ceylon because of the coumarin issue – high doses of other types of cinnamon in capsule form would put too stress on your liver. But if you were just using it to flavor food, either Ceylon or Vietnamese cinnamon would work. And yes, Vietnamese cinnamon is the same as Saigon cinnamon 🙂 Hope that helps!

    • Thanks so much Cindy!! I’m sure you will love this recipe! It’s the perfect drink for relaxing before bedtime!
